I Feel Disconnected

We're sorry, your call cannot be completed as dialed... 441 People

    What do you do once the emotion is gone.

    When you're not happy and you've stopped being depressed. Art isn't my everything anymore. Music bores me. What now?

    Sorry. It's my fault.

    It seems like whether it's in person,txting, social apps, etc. Everybody feels like I'm trying to ignore them. I'm not. I'm sorry. Things are just weird now that I'm back.

    You would think that a person with

    I'm not really upset about it, just that I have become aware of how little I seem to truly connect with a lot of my friends. Like a friend will tell me, along with other friends a sad story and I know that the appropriate response is to be sad so I will act sad with the group...

    It is not that you are disconnected.

    When I reach out to someone, I feel farther away from them than I did before. When I try to love someone, they pull away. When I try to connect, people become more distant. I wonder what I am doing so wrong. Am I really so scary that people want to go away?
